    Yup...NVidia has a habit of naming cards so they sound better than they really are.

    the 5600xt is equivalent to the 9600se.
    Check if you can get a nvidia geforce 6600 for around the same price - its a lot faster than the 9600xt.

    actually the 9600xt is comparable to the 5900xt,

    the 5600xt is real bad, worse then my radeon 9200 (dead! :().
